You do your best to provide whole, nutritious foods for your entire family – including the ones with four legs. All too often, commercially produced dog treats are full of fillers and additives that you don’t want to feed your pup. Thankfully, it’s easy to prepare organic dog treats at home, saving you money and giving you peace of mind, so you understand every ingredient in your dog’s treats. Keep reading for 3 recipes that will have you whipping up your own organic dog treats in no time.
Cinnamon Chicken Organic Dog Treats
This recipe includes olive oil, a healthy fat that benefits your dog’s coat and digestion. Your pup will dig these dog biscuits, which can be quickly made with items already in your pantry!
- 1 cup organic flour
- 1 cup organic bone broth
- 3/4 cup organic oatmeal
- 1/4 cup organic cornstarch
- 1/4 cup organic olive oil
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp organic cinnamon
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the dry ingredients into a large bowl, then drizzle in olive oil and bone broth while mixing. Turn out your dough onto a floured, flattened surface and use cookie cutters to form individual treats. Lay your organic dog treats on a lightly greased baking sheet for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
Peanut Butter Coconut Organic Dog Treats
This recipe contains only 3 ingredients and couldn’t be easier to make. The coconut oil in this recipe is great for your dog’s coat and will help their paw pads stay hydrated and healthy.
- 1 cup organic coconut oil
- 1 cup all natural, organic peanut butter
- 1 tsp organic cinnamon
Add all ingredients to a double boiler on your stovetop, nesting a smaller pot with the ingredients into a larger pot of boiling water. As the ingredients start to melt, whisk them together until fully incorporated.
Before the mixture has time to cool, pour into small, silicone baking trays and lay flat in the freezer until set. Once your treats have hardened, store in the fridge until use.
Irresistible Organic Dog Treats
These treats contain 4 simple ingredients and pups are guaranteed to go nuts for them.
- 3 cups of organic flour (sprouted flour is easiest for dogs to digest)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup filtered water
- ½ cup all natural, organic peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grab a large bowl and mix all 4 ingredients together. You may want to use your hands as the biscuit dough can be rather thick. Lightly grease a baking pan and press your dough mixture onto it, cutting your treats into shapes before baking. If you don’t want to get fancy with shapes you can use a pizza cutter to cut them into simple squares. Bake for 20 minutes and allow to cool before breaking apart. Store at room temp for a week or freeze extras for later use!
